After WJM-TV news does a story on them, Rhoda talks a reluctant Mary into joining her in joining the Better Luck Next Time Club - a club for divorced people - when they learn that the club offers its members cheap charter flights to Paris, where Mary has always wanted to go but hasn't because the flights have always been too expensive. Mary's plan is to go to the meeting, sign up and leave after finding out about the flights. But their time at the meeting doesn't go quite according to plan when the club leaders don't talk about the flights, and when an ardent admirer, Dr. Walter Udall, gets Mary voted Vice-President of the club. Feeling guilty, Mary has to decide whether to tell the truth about not being divorced (let alone not ever having been married) or continue with the facade to get the cheap trip. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


Sparkie: Hi, my name is Frances Franklin, but everybody calls me Sparkie. I don't know why. I guess it's cause all my friends say I sparkle and bubble. They say ever since I'm divorced I'm like another person, all sparkling. Thats why they call me Sparkie.
Sparkie: Isn't that crazy?
Rhoda Morgenstern: Yes.
